Thanks and thanks, Ray! That black spring means it's more like '75/'76. Somewhat rare as the black spring is normally or more often found with the HSS tang. And the ones I have like this are with the stainless Hoff inlay. So it also teaches me that this overlap is a bit longer and starts a bit earlier than I thought.
Very nice... I didn’t bring me a Hoffritz SAK up to Atlanta...wonder if I can find one around here
